Multiple vegetative shoots and flowers emerged from the nodes of explants derived from young seedlings of the bamboo Dendrocalamus hamiltonii when cultured on a Murashige & Skoog based medium supplemented with the cytokinin 6-benzyladenine (BA). The largest number of shoots produced from intact cultured epicotyl tissue (ca 8 per explant) were obtained after 12 weeks on a medium containing 4.4 μM BA. The first flowers were observed in vitro after only 13 weeks from initial germination of the… CONTINUE READING
